Just curious about a general concensus among the fanbase... Suppose something goes horrbly wrong and RoR is not wearing Blue and Gold when this all shakes out - Who, if any of these guys do you think would be the 'next best fit' for what we're missing (ie; a 2-way def. centre & facoff guy who is not a total plug)? I tried to keep the list to guys that seem to be attainable without horribly overpaying....

C Lars Eller - MTL - 23 y.o - 6'2" 209lbs. - 46.7% FO (46.6% in 2012)
C Marcel Goc - FLA - 29 y.o. - 6'1" 205lbs. - 47.7% FO (51.6% n 2012)
C Brian Boyle - NYR - 28 y.o. - 6'7" 244lbs. - 53.4% FO (51.8% in 2012)
C Derick Brassard - CBJ -25 y.o. - 6'1" 202lbs. - 44.6% FO (45.1% in 2012)

Or a little less likely, but still a possibility...

C Kyle Brodziak - MIN - 28 y.o. - 6'2" 210lbs. - 52.6% FO (49.5% in 2012)
C Valtteri Filppula - DET - 28 y.o. - 6'0" 195ibs. - 54.9% FO (51.7% in 2012)

Or do we dole out more $$$ and potentially overpay with assets to try and pry a guy like Martin Hanzal (43.7% FO in 2013, 52.1 in 2012) out of the desert or Mike Fisher (50% FO - $4.5M cap hit) out of NSH - and no Fisher no longer has a NTC... it was limited through this season, but he declined to provide list.

We need help real bad, who would you like to see in Buffalo if not O'Reilly?

Thoughts???
